You must construct additional pylons.

Training Grounds says it can't reduce the cost below one mana, so you'll end up paying one mana for every card you want to suspend.

Okay, seems no one noticed this before.

1.) Training Grounds
2.) Izzet Guildmage
3.) Manamorphose
4.) Draw your whole library, add s*itload of mana to your mana pool
5.) ???

@A3Kitsune. Right. The lack of the word "card" threw me off. Sorry. I editted my list...feel free to rate this comment up since it should help people looking for cards this interacts with (which takes quite a while using the gatherer).

Quick list of combo potential for training ground:

Snow Mana: Can this reduce away snow mana costs? Huh...

Flamekin: Turn 3 six red mana. If you have a second flamekin in hand, turn 3 10 red mana.

Sliver Queen/Overlord: The obvious one. The queen's combo has been around since she has (heartstone).

Scandel Monger: Might as well now say "all players discard their hands". Looks neat for like Hollowtooth Hollow...still not really worth it though.

Masticore: colorless mana regeneration and 1: do 1 damage. Brutal.

Rebels: Cost 2 less to search. Kinda nice. No other blue rebels to support it though...

Feral Animist: Three colors. But its a 16/16 on turn 4. 32/32 the turn after...

Voltaic Construct: You could always use this to go infinite with meta... (see all)

I HAVE SHOCKING NEWS! I just discovered a card that this one DOESN'T combo with!

This is better than heart stone. Doesn't help opponents creatures, double the decrease in cost, and costs 2 less. Only drawback is U, but that's nothing. This card is a little, uh, good.

Sphinx of Magosi anyone? Even better combos out there too.

Would this card include Morphs, specifically un-morphing the cards?

I have to believe that WotC did not really think things through when they created this card. Completely broken insanity.

I predict that this card will go the way of skullclamp before too long.

Four of these babies and you can use Spawnsire's ability for just 12 mana of any color. Sweet deal!
